Introducing Focus Culture
"Taking Note" has reached its end. What's next? An all-new podcast for 2019 called "Focus Culture," available right now.
Refreshing the Evernote Brand
When Evernote decided to refresh its brand after 10 years, it was about more than tweaking the logo or adopting a new color scheme. It was about distilling the company’s essence, clarifying its purpose and point of view.
In this episode, Francie Strong and Jonathan Woytek walk us through why Evernote undertook this effort, what's changed and what hasn't, what it means for the company and its customers, and what other brands can learn from the experience.
Managing Remote Teams with Dave Mattson & Norm Happ
People can work from literally anywhere now, but that freedom brings serious challenges. How can you set a remote team up for success?
Sales organizations have been dealing with these questions for years, so we sat down with two global leaders to get their perspectives. Dave Mattson is CEO and President of Sandler Training. Norm Happ is Evernote's Senior Vice President of Sales, Customer Success, & Partnerships. Together they offer a blueprint for building and maintaining a remote team that works.
Riding the Creative Curve with Allen Gannett
Are you a creative person? Most people have been conditioned to think of creativity as the sole domain of geniuses, a divine quality beyond the reach of normal humans. But is it really?
Allen Gannett, author of "The Creative Curve" and CEO of TrackMaven, says most of us have creativity all wrong. In this episode, Allen uses the history and science of creative success to break down common myths and explains how anyone can learn to navigate the "creative curve" between novelty and familiarity with the right mix of preparation, timing, and feedback.
Dream Teams with Shane Snow
We’ve all heard about “dream teams,” collections of individuals who somehow become more than the sum of their parts and achieve extraordinary things. We celebrate them, mythologize them, and even build pop culture franchises around the idea (superheroes, anyone?).
But where does that synergy come from? What can we learn from the teams that have it? And how can we apply those lessons to our own work? To find out, we asked Shane Snow, author of the new book Dream Teams: Working Together without Falling Apart.
Shane reveals the hidden traits that separate ordinary teams from dream teams, shares tips to enhance any team, and tells us how he used Evernote to create the book.
Growing a Small Business Takes Tools and Talent
Every idea, no matter how grand, starts in the head of a single person. And most businesses, no matter how large, started out the same way. Growing a small business takes a solid foundation of tools and talent. But time and resources are limited, so how can you find, evaluate, and manage the right people and the right tools to get more done in less time?
In honor of Small Business Week (April 29–May 5, 2018), leaders from Evernote and Upwork get together to share trends they’ve seen in the SMB space and their favorite tips for helping small businesses scale up faster.
One of my favorites but seems irregular
I love this show. Covers great perspectives on business tools and processes. Not overly Evernote-centric at all. One of the best interview podcasts I’ve ever heard. I just wish it was more regular and/or frequent.
Great show - not enough...
I love this podcast, but there is not enough of them. There are some podcasts that are daily, and that, for me is too much. I can’t keep up with them all. But once a week, or every other week... even once a month from Evernote would be great!
The interviews are fantastic and practical. They are not very Evernote centric, which I am on the fence about. I want to learn more about how people use the tool in their world, not just that they do.
It’s one thing to learn Evernote on your own, but I learn something new each episode here, and it expands my approach and methods. If there were more episodes I could learn faster. That’s my selfish wish.
Awesome show, highly recommend!
Forrest and his guests share actionable and inspiring lessons on how to take a more thoughtful approach to productivity and personal development.
Highly recommend listening and subscribing to Taking Note if you want the knowledge AND mindsets to level up in all areas of life (and reach your overall goals as a result)!
